On American Independence Day, Captivate were crowned winners at the Visit USA Media Awards in London. Captivate co-founder, Sarah Lee, and travel writer Ella Buchan accepted the Digital Influencer Award for the inspirational #DriveUS1 campaign.
We’re on the road with our latest campaign. Captivate has teamed up with award-winning travel writer, Ella Buchan, for a great US adventure and an epic project. Ella has hit the road from Fort Kent, in Maine, in the far north of the US travelling to Key West at the very southernmost point.
Travel blogging has come a long way. This much was clear with the award at the recent Travel Media Awards. No longer the preserve of the gap year traveller or digital nomad, professional travel bloggers are bringing such success to clients that they’re winning national awards. The Travel Media Award for Innovative Campaign and Content was hotly contested between national publications and large PR companies, as well as a blogger collective.
For 2015, Germany invites the world to #joingermantraditions by showcasing its widespread cultural traditions that live on in today’s modern Germany.

It’s a busy, busy time for Team Captivate. While we’ve finally hung up our #30activedays hiking and biking boots this week, we’ve started two new campaigns.

For the past three weeks the Captivate team has been walking, cycling and even kayaking their way around Europe for the #30activedays campaign.

But this week we paused to […]
It’s not every day we get chance to celebrate something really big. So when Headwater Holidays asked us to help them celebrate their 30th birthday we were delighted to put together a major campaign for them.
To help celebrate turning the big 3-0, leading walking and cycling specialist, Headwater, has launched a brand new 30-day relaxed “hike and bike” relay event, taking in some of the most beautiful corners of Europe! Working in partnership with Captivate, Headwater has commissioned an elite group of award-winning bloggers and digital storytellers to walk and cycle through undiscovered France, Italy and Austria, burning calories in real time and gently getting fit and healthy in a way they never could, even in the swankiest of gyms!
In support of the Atout France ‘What’s Your Tour de France’ UK marketing initiative, four Captivate bloggers will be live reporting and blogging on three different regions and three cities in France over the next two months. The objective of the campaign is to showcase the wide variety of activities and experiences available across France, in line with the tagline: “Your France. Your way. Every holiday in France is unique and packed with memories”. Four Captivate bloggers will report from different regions, covering various themes from now until June. There will be live updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to highlight history, culture and heritage trails, alongside France’s famous gastronomy, remembrance tourism and numerous city breaks that make a great alternative to Paris.
